I need Rihanna‘s dad to find new sources of beer money besides giving abusive ex-boyfriend boosting interviews with British tabloids.

Now that Rihanna and Chris Brown are reportedly broken up, Ronald Fenty is telling The Sun that he hopes they get back together. Yes, the guy who not only physically abused her, but proceeded to parade around the fact that he was essentially being with two women at the same damn time.

Yet, Papa Fenty says:

“I’m still his No1 fan — I still like Chris regardless. They have a very passionate relationship but if they split up it does not mean it’s for ever with them. In a couple of months they’ll be back together.”

Just to keep a running tally: Rihanna’s father had substance abuse issues and physically abused her mother. And after Rihanna herself was abused, Ronald Fenty acted like he was damn near Chris Brown’s publicist.

On top of that, Rihanna’s pops has mentioned how he’s told her in the past that he felt she was getting fat. Now, he’s saying he wants Rihanna to get back with a guy who her own tweets suggests isn’t for her right now.

Granted, The Sun is about as reliable as your first cousins when they say they’re “around the corner” when they know damn well they haven’t even left the house yet, but still, I wouldn’t put it past ol’ Papa Fenty to be running his mouth about things he need not be running it about.
